DELCO, NC (WWAY) — Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten says one man is dead and two women injured after a party turned deadly early Saturday morning.

Deputies responded just after 4 a.m. to a shooting at the Triple K Ranch on Big Branch Road in Delco, where Sheriff Batten says there was party that was heavily advertised.

According to the Sheriff’s Office Dysheka Bell, 17, of 66 Hoover Road, went by private vehicle to Columbus Regional Health Care with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Miyah Moore, 16, of Big Branch Road, went to Cape Fear Hospital with a gunshot wound to the hand. Ulicus Robinson, 31, of 2742 Robinson Trail in Northwest, was transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center with two gunshot wounds to the abdomen. Robinson died shortly after arriving at NHRMC.

According to Sheriff Batten, investigators believe the shooter was the same man who showed up at the party and was not recognized by anyone. We are told he was throwing signs and pushing people around. A fight started, gunshots were fired and Robinson was killed.

The shooter has not been found and no arrests have been made.

Investigators say early information is that the club was rented for a birthday party. Recent complaints have been made concerning parties at the club, the Sheriff’s Office said. When officers arrived this morning the club and parking lot were vacant.

The Columbus County Sheriff’s Office and the Northwest Police Department are investigating. Investigators ask that anyone who was at the club at the time of the shooting or has information to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (910) 642-6551.

So Im Assuming You’re One? If the place is such a dump, DON’T GO BACK. If they let you in, your last statement was true.

This place is nothing but a death trap its a little house sitting on a dirt road that is only one way in and one way out. How can you say this place is not a club? Its call the “AFTER CLUB SPOT” people always go there just about every weekend around 2:00am and leave around 6:00am. The only thing that change about this place is the DeeJay and the admission price. They NEVER check ID, they sell Alcohol, & Fried Chicken. Only thing this place care about is MONEY. The owners of this Daycare, Club, After Club Spot whatever you want to call this place really need to be held accountable.
I remember the first time I went to “THE RANCH” it was about 2yrs old. When we got arrived there was a few guys standing on this dirt road. They stopped the car two of the guys searched the cars and other guy was the money man and the other two search the men coming to the club. There was not a girl bouncer so the girls didnt get searched. There was soo many people in this LITTLE house. I felt like i was going to pass out & was unsafe so me and my boyfriend left. On the way out we had to wait for them to search the other cars before we could leave since its only one road to this place. I guess things have changed since then. I went back to this place this summer and the only thing that changed was NO ONE or NO car was searched. This place is a NIGHTMARE.
My prayers go out to the family that lost their love one. To those young girls that were out there remember you are still young and you have a life to live. Stop trying to grow up so fast the clubs and parties will still be there when you are of age to go and when you are fine another place to go have fun.

A lease establishment does not protect the owners if the owners are aware of the illegal activities that occur and do nothing about it… thats like saing if I have a home and a child is being abused in it and I am rented it to the childs mother and I do nothing about it even though i have been made aware of it numerous times and I see the bruises and hear the noise and have even been their when it occurs I am not liable to do something to protect them.. just saying

Actually I can honestly say i do not have anything illegal in my closet, my home, my life or my property and if I as a owner was well aware of the illegal activites that are going on and do nothing to stop them and then someone gets MURDERED becasue of it then yes the finger should be pointed at me too… Save your prayers for me and pray for the owners of this establishment that were the cause and effect for getting 3 “innocent” people shot.. Thank you and God Bless
